Description

After installing 2.16.0 multiple times, whenever I try to access a function from the toolbox I receive the following error:

Missing dependency. This algorithm cannot be run :-(
It seems that GRASS is not correctly installed and configured in your system. Please install it before running GRASS algorithms.

The files are present, but appear not to be registered.

Invoking the tool from the command line I receive this message:

The program can't start because libgrass_gis.7.0.4.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

standalone? osgeo4w?

#2 Updated by belg4mit - over 4 years ago

OSGEO4W (QGIS-OSGeo4W-2.16.0-1-Setup-x86_64)

#3 Updated by Andre Joost over 4 years ago

Can you retry with QGIS-OSGeo4W-2.16.0-2-Setup-x86_64.exe?

#4 Updated by belg4mit - over 4 years ago

I have the same problem with 2.16.0-3

#5 Updated by Andre Joost over 4 years ago

Grass standalone is working?

What have you entered as GRASS folder / Grass GIS 7 folder / MSYS folder in the processing options Provider section?

#6 Updated by belg4mit - over 4 years ago

The installed defaults are:

Grass 7 Msys: C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS21~1.0/apps\\msys
Grass folder: C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS21~1.0/apps\\grass\\grass-7.0.4
Grass Msys: C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS21~1.0/apps\\msys

There is no msys folder in apps though, whereas there is in my installation of 2.12

this is the standalone installer (that derives from osgeo4w packages).

GRASS7 has no more msys, while there is in GRASS6.

Please:
  • try a clean install, deleting the .qgis2 folder and any reference to QGIS in WIndows registry
  • try the osgeo4w (advanced) install, install only GRASS7, then check in Processing properties that the GRASS7 provider is correctly configured pointing to the GRASS7 folder within the osgeo4w installation folder.
